We can all use extra spending money, or a cushion for life’s unexpected events, so join us for our 2019 Savings Challenges! We’ll be doing a year long challenge, as well as several short-term challenges, so join in as many as you want! Here are some tips to make these challenges easier:
- Set goals. Do you want to take a vacation, pay for Christmas gifts next year, pay off credit cards? Whatever your goals, keep them in mind as you save. Put sticky notes around your house to keep you motivated!
- Open a separate savings account to deposit money-out of sight, out of mind!
- Save your loose change. Toss your coins into a jar and cash it in at the end of the year
- Set up a budget. This can be daunting but start small. Don’t cut out everything at once-you’ll get overwhelmed and be more tempted to give up. Set a realistic budget and timeline.
We’ll offer more tips and tricks as we go along. We’re so excited to have you on this saving journey! Here’s to a prosperous 2019!
